I'm the author of ​​​​​​​Benedicta Takes Wing, a collection of short stories forthcoming from Philippine American Literary House (PALH) in 2017.

I was born, raised, and live in the San Francisco Bay Area. I'm the mother of three teenage daughters, but guess what? I'm doing okay. 

My reading venues/classroom visits include the Library of Congress - Asian Division, Asian Pacific Museum, San Francisco Main Library, Bindlestiff Studio, Bayanihan Community Center, UC Berkeley, USF, SFSU, Santa Clara University, and Notre Dame de Namur.

My fiction has appeared in literary journals including Bamboo Ridge, Prism International, and maganda, as well as in these anthologies.
